In the beginning there was beauty

There was man and Eve

Life given in such magnitude

And freedom

Her Creator, her Maker

He designed her in Love

In His image she was formed

Eyes to see color

Ears to hear melody

Hands to touch softness

Feet to journey

Heart to fill with delight

Beauty to share

A man to love and be loved

But darkness loomed

In a moment of temptation

Eve chose the serpent

She lost sight of God

All seemed lost

Shame and guilt covered

Eve is exposed

And yet her story

Does not end in guilt

She is redeemed

She is restored

She is renewed

She is our mother of life

And her story is not over

Neither is ours

Our daily hope

Is Jesus.
